Relevant Content For Senior Level Promotion Executives

Understanding the business environment of your next partner is the foundation of a successful deal. The L.A. Office created the Industry Insights program to profile trends, activities and marketing opportunities within the most partner-friendly industries. Taking place in an intimate setting in New Orleans, the Forum will focus on both company and industry-wide trends relevant to senior level marketers.

Deals Happen at Industry Insights!

Over the years, the event has become the launching pad for many major partnerships. The right mix of content, attendees and setting have led to numerous deals.

For the 2nd year, Insights is moving east!

The Forum is patterned after our west coast Summit, which was created in 2006 to deliver relevant content, high caliber attendees and extensive networking. Based on this success (and the number of deals that come out of each event), the marketing community has been pushing for an opportunity outside of the west coast. New Orleans provides the perfect setting for our 2nd annual event!  Click here for more information about the Forum.

Brand Marketers Continue To Endorse The Value In Industry Insights!

Celebrity Cruises"Participating in the Industry Insights Forum as a speaker was very worthwhile. On one level, Celebrity Cruises benefited by gaining exposure for our brand and dispelling myths about the cruising industry and specifically how our brand delivers a truly differentiated experience. On another, we created excitement forentertainmentmarketers to consider new ways to connect with potential audiences with a premium vacation brand. All in all, a terrific experience for Celebrity Cruises."

-- Lisa Kauffman, Vice President, Marketing, Celebrity Cruises

Trends, Activities & Opportunities From The Most Partner-Friendly Brands

Each session at the event is structured to provide trends, activities, challenges and opportunities about the presenter's industry and company. We work with each presenter to help deliver a balance of industry and company information that is relevant to promotional marketers.
